The Houston County Master Gardeners help grow gardens and gardeners through grants and mentoring. For 2020, two grants have been awarded, which are listed below:
Grow – La Crescent School Garden
The Grow project at the La Crescent School District utilizes their grant to involve students in planning, planting, maintaining, and harvesting vegetables for use in the school.
Upon its completion in 2020, the “Grow” project held a ribbon cutting ceremony. Here are some pictures from that event, along with some shots of the progress of the garden. Our thanks to Eagle Scout candidate, Nick, for building the infrastructure, as well as planting, and Houston County Master Gardener, Deb Zilmer, for assisting with planning, ordering materials, and planting. We also thank Susan Oddsen and Bonnie Martin for their efforts in securing this project for the school.

ABC Works is planning to install some container gardens for growing vegetables for their workers and staff.
Annually, the Houston County Master Gardeners provide a spring workshop for the public. This year’s workshop was cancelled due to Coronavirus concerns, however, some of our previous program presentations are available on our Resources page.
